Joy of joys, miracle of miracles! There is finally a release date for Scott Lynch's long awaited (and I mean LOOOONG awaited) third Gentlemen Bastards book, The Republic of Thieves!

Announced today on his publisher's blog, the third book to feature the clever Locke Lamora and his trusty friend Jean will be released in the UK on October 10, 2013 and in the US on October 8, 2013.

If you heard a loud disturbance in the Force this morning, it was Locke Lamora fans absolutely losing their shit at this news.

I AM SO EXCITED! Is it October yet?!

(If you haven't read any if the Locke Lamora books, you have until October. Get thee to a bookstore! They are some of the best fantasy I've read in years!)
